Comments are love.
"Hey, Who do I have to fuck to get a refill around here?" Brian barks angrily, sitting at the counter at the Liberty Diner waving his empty coffee mug in the air.
"Not me apparently," Justin replies dryly.
"What are you doing here anyway?" Brian asks.
"I work here if you haven't noticed. It's my night shift," Justin answers in a flat voice.
"Since when are you working nights?" Brian asks sharply.
"Since I live with my boyfriend and we're splitting the rent," Justin answers.
"Ah... young love, how charming. Looks like you two live in utter bliss in that dump of an apartment," Brian sneers.
"Shut up Brian," Justin pouts. He then grabs one of the coffee pots and refills Brian's coffee mug. "Not that it's any of my business but what the fuck are you doing here at this time of night? No fucking Halloween party for you or anything?" He asks after a slight pause.
"Au Contraire, there's a very big party at The Meat Hook but I didn't feel like going," Brian answers pulling his lips inward.
"I see," Justin huffs and proceeded to wipe the countertop and attend to other costumers who walked in.
"Aren't you gonna ask me why?" Brian asks.
"I already told you, we're not together. it's not my business anymore. Now excuse me I have some costumers here," Justin replies.
"I can wait," Brian says.
"Suit yourself, it's a free country. You can sit here all night for all I care but don't except me to wait on you hand and foot," Justin states.
"Sounds tempting I have to admit," Brian's voice drops an octave.
"You've had your chance with me but now it's gone, " Justin answers " You can have any random trick this side of Pittsburgh waiting on you hand and foot and then some tonight. You really shouldn't sit here at the Diner. You should go knock yourself out at the bars while you're at it," He continues sarcastically.
"I'm not in the mood," Brian sulks.
"Well then I really can't help you," Justin says turning away from the counter.
"When'd you get off work?" Brian asks.
"Fuck you Brian, why are you doing this to me? Are you stalking me now? " Justin answers back, his blue eyes glisten with anger.
"Hell no, I'm not a stalker," Brian sticks his tongue inside his cheek. "It's just that they're having a Spooky Ass House party at Babylon and I thought you might want to hang out,"
"Why would I want to hang out with YOU?" Justin teases.
"I Dunno..." Brian shrugs his shoulders.
"Will they play butt hole Bingo there again?" Justin snorts.
"My Babylon carnival themed party a few weeks ago was a resounding success if I should say so myself," Brian notes "As was the Rage party," he continues with a raised eyebrow.
"Angry fucking a random trick dressed in a Rage costume isn't exactly what I would call a resounding success," Justin hisses. "Look Brian, I really don't have time for this. My shift ends at midnight so feel free to continue with your wicked ways,"
"It won't be the same, " Brian mumbles absently.
"What was that? Speak up Brian. Did I just hear you say it won't be the same?" Justin can't help but smirk.
"Well… I guess I kinda did say that," Brian sounds grumpy.
"So wait, do you mean you actually MISS me? " Justin asks.
Brian shrugs again and averts his eyes.
Justin leans over the counter –which is heavily adorned with Debbie's tackiest Halloween decorations- to confronts Brian." Did the cat eat your tongue? Answer me for once in your life you fucker… Do you REALLY miss me ? "
"I… I do," Brian finally admits quietly, letting out a deep sigh.
Justin stands there in silence staring at his former lover. "Don't fuck with me Brian, " he eventually says.
"I'm NOT fucking with you YET but I was kinda hoping to, " Brian wiggles his eyebrows.
"Not so fast Kinney," Justin answers.
"So what'd you say? Should we go check that Spooky House party later tonight?" Brian suggests after a few minutes.
"Promise you won't fuck any random guys dressed in lousy Super Hero costumes?" Justin asks hesitantly.
"Only if you promise not to fuck any other guys dressed as lame ass Spooky violin players," Brian answers back.
"Hey Kiki," Justin turns to the other waitress that's dressed as Magenta from Rocky Horror Picture show "Could you cover for me for the rest of the shift tonight?"
"Sure baby," Kiki answers with a wink.
"Thank you so much, I owe you one," Justin says as he takes off his apron and puts on his coat.
"It's okay, don't worry about it. Show him what he's been missing," Kiki whispers in Justin's ear.
"I definitely intend to," Justin whispers back, wrapping his striped scarf around his neck. "Ready to go lover boy? " He snorts at Brian before they leave the Diner.
"Ready as I'll ever be," Brian groans.
"You better be 'cause it's gonna to be one hell of a party!" Justin exclaims triumphantly before they step out into the cold October night.
